for the bmx shot i had a fisheye lens on with a slow shutter, so the flashes froze the rider and the light in the background got dragged around, so no appearance altering photoshop, just tweaking. thanks.
so many cool things you can do with a flash. Some of Nelly's work (surf photog for transworld) uses multiple flashes or flashes positioned in the water with him shooting separate. Very creative stuff.
Yea definitely sandspit I used to live within walking distance to that spot. Never saw it firing like it was in one california day but it looks sick. That pier is actually across the harbor mouth, with a nice little skatepark on the other side.
does cold water effect a camera even with casing ???
How cold you talking? Firstly, most camera's are rated to operate to 32deg F. In that case, unless you're diving in ice, no. Even at the point, I've been shooting in the dead of winter when it is 15deg F out. Just gotta be easy on the equipment when it gets real cold. Manual focusing is usually better, cause its less mechanical strain.
As for the camera in the housing, it should be fine in extremely cold water. That doesn't mean that nothing can go wrong. You don't wanna let water freeze on the case, or the case freeze itself. Definitely not the o-ring in the case, cause then it will most definitely affect the camera. My housing fogs up if the water gets real cold.
